Compressor is gone on a 2004 hyundai Accent, this is way too soon on a seven year car. never heard buying a brand new car part don't last much anymore. unsatified with this Brand.
I bought a used 4 door Accent with automatic transmission with overdrive for my wife and I think it is a great little car. The main complaint that I have is that it takes a very long time for the A/C to get cool. After starting the car and turning on the air I have to drive about 15 minutes before the compressor kicks in and the air blows cold. Here in Las Vegas that is a serious inconvenience. I do love the overdrive. I use the overdrive for better gas mileage. However, when driving 15 south to California there are some long steep climbs so the car keeps downshifting and uppshifting to maintain speed. When I click the button to disengage the overdrive I have all of the constant steady power I need to get over the hill and I love it.
Perfect car for me. Great gas mileage. Full time student and full time work. I drive about 50 miles a day. I have the hatchback and stun people with what I can fit in it. Getting ready to replace the clutch for the first time and I am at 150,000 miles. Worth every penny.
Have owned this used for 3yrs now (usually drive trucks, minivans, larger vehicles). Parts are extremely cheap to buy from the right source (not the dealer). I've had 3 door handles break internally, all in the same place, replaced them (PITA). @86,000 miles and still get 34-35mpg at 75mph on the interstate. turned out to be a better deal than I thought but the drawback that being a cheap import is interior noise, fit/finish, missing features (cruise control, but has electric windows...go figure). no complaints otherwise and I plan to drive it as a commuter vehicle until the wheels fall off.
